DA opens TienDA opens in Muntinlupa City
Due to strong demand, the Department of Agriculture (DA) has opened today the TienDA Farmers and Fishermen’s Outlet in Muntinlupa City which will run until tomorrow.
The TienDA in Muntinlupa is a joint project of the DA and the City Government and is located at the LGU Compound.
Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol said farm products from Mindanao such as vegetables and fruits will be sold in the makeshift market, while nearby regions also brought in fish.
He also said that this time, San Miguel Corp. (SMC) pledged to support the project by selling Magnolia dressed chicken at P139 per kilo.
The National Food Authority (NFA), on the other hand, will sell rice at P27 per kilo.
Next week, a bigger and regular DA TienDA Malasakit Store will open in Taguig City in partnership with the City Government under Mayor Lani Cayetano, Piñol said.
